Contestant Ken Morley, the former Coronation Street star, has been removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house for using "unacceptable and offensive language", Channel 5 said today.

Police are investigating allegations Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson pulled former glamour model Chloe Goodman's bathrobe open in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Jackson, 34, was kicked off the Channel 5 show after former Page 3 girl Goodman, 21, claimed he drunkenly tried to look at her breasts while the two were alone in the toilet.

Sobbing, the glamour model told housemates: "I was helping him and he went to my dressing grown top and put my boob out."

The alleged incident, which was not shown on camera, came after Goodman went to Jackson's assistance as he vomited after mixing rum and vodka.

Hertfordshire Police, the force covering Borehamwood where the Big Brother house is, confirmed they are working with the show's producers to probe what had happened.

A spokesman said:

We have been made aware of an alleged incident having taken place in the Big Brother House in Borehamwood in the early hours of Saturday January 10.

We are currently working with the programme's producers as part of our inquiries. It would be inappropriate to comment any further at this time."

Sex change boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has entered the Big Brother house.

The 61-year-old, who was formerly known as Frank, is the bookies' favourite to win this year's show and is reportedly being paid the most money- £400,000- to appear.

Celebrities who entered the house before her included Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan, Kelly Brook's fiance David McIntosh and former Emmerdale actress Claire King.

As she went in she said: "It's the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done."

But within minutes she was asking Strictly star Jordan to give her dancing lessons while she was in the house.

Boxer Audley Harrison, who knows Maloney through his career, praised her as he entered the house saying: "Hats off to you," to revealing her gender reassignment.

Jokingly, he asked her after all this time why she could only come up with the name Kellie. Maloney replied: "I'm dyslexic and it was easy to spell."

Benefit Street star White Dee is also already in the house and is getting a makeover so she can pretend to the American housemates she is the "Duchess of Solihull."
